Slate Roof Repair

Slate roofing is incredibly durable, but strong winds, torrential rain, and heavy snow can still cause damage. A damaged roof can’t adequately protect you from the elements and can even lead to structural issues down the line. Fortunately, Hermitage Roofing Company, Inc. offers slate roof repair services to homeowners in Richmond.

What Does Slate Roof Repair Entail?

Slate roof repair has several steps. The first is inspection, which includes the use of visuals and moisture-detecting tools. If the issues are minimal, we can recommend repair instead of replacement.

Repair Holes

Once we’ve pinpointed the trouble, we can patch it up. To do so, we remove any broken or cracked tiles and fix the roof components underneath. It’s crucial to make a water-tight patch, as the area will be more vulnerable to moisture.

Replace Tiles

With the underlying issue fixed, we install new slate tiles that will match your roof and protect the underlayment.

What Are the Signs a Slate Roof Needs Repair?

How can you tell if you need slate roof repair? In some cases, you may notice a problem right away, such as when a storm knocks a branch onto your roof. However, some signs are more insidious, so you need to keep an eye out.

Missing Tiles

Slate tiles can get knocked loose by strong winds or debris. In some cases, they may get blown off and expose the underlayment. If you see open spaces on your roof, it’s time to call a professional.


Have you noticed mysterious puddles around the house? Does their appearance correspond with rainy days? If you have an on-again, off-again leak, the water may be coming through your roof.


Moisture leads to mold, which can sometimes grow inside walls and in other hidden places. If you notice a bad odor and water damage, you may have mold, which means water is getting into your house.
